PIXIE Data Products

Stokes I,Q,U sensitivities as a function of frequency are provided for the baseline mission concept. The baseline mission assumes 2 years of observations with 45% of observing time spent with the calibrator deployed (sensitive to spectral distortions and polarization) and 45% with the calibrator stowed (sensitive to polarization only). Values at frequencies 28.8 GHz, 38.4 GHz, and 48.0 GHz are from observations with the calibrator deployed, while values at higher frequencies are from observations with the calibrator stowed.
